A bright sheath can be a no-brainer on those blah mornings, when you are running late and still got a whole lot of shenanigans up your alley. My poorly-done hair definitely speaks for that tardiness, but if the dress is a bright yellow like this one today, you are ready to kick anyone's ass!!!!
I wore this outfit sans the heels, the necklace, the orange lips and the white vest, but with trench, to a parental seminar at my daughter's school. There wasn't any dress code per se, but by default you are expect to follow the rules of social ethics, and show up, if not in office formals, then at least in semi-formals, at such events/seminars. I just did what was expected and wore this dress under a trench and with red bow flats......cute but mommy-like serious to an extent.......LOL !
